Let’s meditate at the VeganfEST’19 (Kopra Farm, Estonia) this August!

“You are welcome to join my morning guided easy meditation wake up sessions! Especially if you think meditation isn't for you! See you!“

Using arts and crafts for improving position of oppressed animals: Marita Tanninen (Vegan Vortex; FI)

“Every person has a key to change the world. I believe spreading the knowledge about animal rights is one thing that can make a big influence, and I think we are heading to more cruelty-free world all the time. If and when we are aware of these things, we can also demand improvements to be written in our laws. For example, many countries have banned fur farming lately. We just have to fight against the system.”

Let’s garden party this Sunday in Ghlin (BE)!

"We welcome everyone from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. So c’mon everybody, Cry Baby on the 2nd of June!"

Believing in being the change you want to see in the world: Corline aka Coco De Los Muertos (Cry Baby Tattoo Belgium; BE)

“Art is the mirror of the society that can make you think differently, showing what is not usually showed.”

I am honored to be the Human Library Book of the Month.

“I strongly believe in education and knowledge exchange. Education can have a positive impact on everyone’s life. It can heal and comfort, inspire and motivate. This also applies to me as a book, and the readers give me so much in return, even if they don’t see it.”

Helping to achieve a zero waste lifestyle – Beauty Kubes by Eve of St. Agnes (UK)

My less waste journey is going strong!

Doing activism with meaningful films: Aćim Vasić (SC/FR)

“The best method of nonviolent struggle is a non-violent protest march (I was part of several protest marches in Serbia during my teenage days). I'm not sure if there is any other method that can have as big impact on the awareness as much as this one.”

Not filling the Earth with unnecessary stuff: Mona Isotupa (Hetkinen; FI)

“We have no future without sustainable design. Sustainable design for me means better daily choices.”

A slow fashion enthusiast: Janita (Annie Eleanoora; FI)

“Buy less, but better! The biggest thing with sustainable development is that we should reduce our consumption.”

Caring about animals and caring about humans don’t rule each other out: Anna Morozova (the Baltics)

“Social and political movements which have equality and compassion in focus are important to me. Compassion in the widest meaning of it, be it to fellow Earthlings, or to planet Earth in general, or to other races, genders, alternative lifestyles, what not. I might say a strange thing, but I think that tolerance is not enough. You can tolerate and secretly hate something or someone at the same time. Compassion and empathy go a longer way, in my opinion. Of course, veganism and third-wave feminism are important. Extinction Rebellion is important, even if I am not involved too much. Various kind of environmental actions, be it within Let’s Do It! frames or otherwise. Those promoting human rights and creating opportunities.”

Putting love and respect for the animals into drawings: Weronika Kolinska (MENIMA; PL/NL)

“Animals are unique, they have personalities. I try to draw animals as individuals and I want to show other people how I see them – beautiful, majestic beings, deserving of our respect. I have also illustrated my favorite vegan poem about the milk industry to depict some of the standard practices, like taking the calves away soon after birth, killing the calves for veal and killing the cows when they are “spent”. I’m proud to say that those illustrations reached and touched a lot of people.”

Promoting vegan, feminist and environmental messages on film and also behind the camera: Melanie Light (UK)

“There is something which is like an addiction from working in the film industry, I love it as form of art and creativity. It is really hard, long hours and can fuck with your mental health but I feel like there is nothing else I could do with myself. I am working hard to get myself into a position where I can use my platform of film making to spread messages and awareness of positivity.”

Advocating for a better world for animals, one art piece at a time: Jane Lewis (UK)

"Non-human persons can teach us to respect and to live in harmony with the planet’s natural environment, and to take from nature only what we really need. Humanity is in the final stages of polluting and destroying the environment for ego and greed. We would do well to look to other animals as examples of how to live with instead of against nature."
